Sincebook cover we've read some very dark novels lately, the Georgetown Book Club's next meeting will focus on something a bit lighter and a lot funnier than anything we've done before.  On May 13 at 7:30, we will meet to discuss How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely.  A writer for 30 Rock, American Dad, and The Late Show with David Letterman, Hely's second book pokes affectionate fun at the publishing industry.  Book lovers will recognize many popular writers and public figures in Hely's hilarious satire.  Stop by the desk to get a copy of the book, and we'll see you on Thursday the 13th!
